A classic French satire performed by PPCC Theater students, staff and alumni.
France, 1668. The entire house of Orgon (Mark E. Cannon) is in an uproar. Orgon, the clueless patriarch, has elevated holy man Tartuffe (Matt Radcliffe) as his honored guest, much to the distress of his family. This seemingly-pious man has insinuated himself into the heart of the household, but domestic happiness is threatened when Tartuffe’s intentions towards Orgon’s wife Elmire (Megan Edwards), daughter Mariane (Hannah Alden McCullough), heir Damis (Anthony Cramer), and entire property appear to be less than wholesome. The family must make quick efforts to unmask this imposter, but will Orgon finally see the religious hypocrite for what he is before the damage is done? What happens when ultimate financial, legal, and personal power is handed to a liar and fraud?
